Fridays for Future in Moscow: Demo banished in the forest

The "Fridays for Future"movement has for the first time to protest in Moscow. But came to the Demo in a secluded Park only 40 participants. The climate change would have in Russia serious consequences.

metal detectors are like gates at the entrance to the "Hyde Park," a fenced-in Assembly grounds in Sokolniki Park, a large Park and recreation facility outside of the Moscow center. It is short before 19 o'clock, and still the security man let anyone. About 40 students marched at minus 1 degree through the dark Park here. Your posters are still rolled up, allowed to unwrap the until after the police have spoken with the organizer. However, the comes slightly too late.

"We must do something," says Lisa Niginskaja.

"Those demonstrations that you don't want to have in the centre for any reason, you only allowed here in this Park, because here everything around is nothing and no one sees us," says resigned, the 16-year-old Lisa Niginskaja something.

police officers check the bags of participants at the entrance, then the students on the brightly lit place.

About climate change, funny

Lisa's self-painted poster reads: "We leave traces in the Form of mountains of trash" - a nod to the toxic waste dumps that had driven in Russia, the people of the past year on the road. She wants to work against climate change. "You have to do something, the governments of various countries around the world must join together," Lisa is convinced.

The 22-year-old Yuri Jerimjan has arrived, he has logged in to the Demonstration: "The Russians are not accustomed to, their opinion publicly known", he tries to explain the lack of interest. Together with other environmentally interested of a trade Union he learned of the "Fridays for Future" and decided Russia had to be here. "In Russia there are so many Attempts to make the issue of climate change is not funny and to not take it really seriously," Jerimjan.
